It's hard to talk about what you're grateful for through forkfuls of turkey and stuffing when you're in bed all week with the flu, so I chose to stay home and be thankful for ibuprofen and the quick passage of time rather than driving to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with my family.
My sweeties here at home refused to go on without me, so they feasted on frozen ravioli for Thanksgiving Dinner.
I would have been really quite sad if I had been able to get out of bed long enough to process any real thoughts.
A few days later when I was feeling better, we ate our own little belated Thanksgiving victuals. As I was looking for a good brine recipe for our turkey, I stumbled onto a recipe for turkey covered in what they gluttonously labeled a "bacon jacket." After not eating for three days, I figured I should jump on that cholesterol train.
It was like basket weaving, but with bacon.
Doesn't our bird look so warm and comfortable in her new jacket?
